spaghetti has suger in it.

I was reading this blog where he talked about suger and in his list, he mentioned spaghetti as having suger. i was very surprised and could not believe it… why would anyone put suger in spaghetti. so i had a look at my value spaghetti and sure enough, the guideline table in front of the pack  says 1.9g . then i read at the back every 100g contains 2.5g suger.

Going back to that signposting i saw it was for 75g . so not only do they put suger in it, but they deliberately put a lower figure by using a lower standard of measure. clever. 

I am not that fanatical about wanting to remove suger in the common everyday foods we eat. everything in moderation is my motto. so no harm in suger in foods as long as u dont eat a lot of one kind of foods. 

Basically dont add suger to your drink or food and you should be ok. 

but it is still rather a revelation to know that even spaghetti has suger in it. i think take as a rule of thumb , any processed foodstuff will have suger , salt, fat in it. i mean even spaghetti has 1.5g of fat.

though it is not really anything to worry about, esp when people add parmesan cheese to their spaghetti and that is like 1000% more fat there. it is why i dont add cheese to my spaghetti bolognaise haha. or why i dont eat pizza either.
